Violence against women is an issue that has long been neglected in Korean society, due in part to a traditional way of life that supposes that women would always be at home or otherwise under the protection of men they could trust. Kim Mi-jo’s “Gull” is not a film about rape itself. Instead, its focus is on the aftermath. An award winner at the 2020 Jeonju Film Festival and part of the London Korean Film Festival line-up, is also significant as the début of one of the country’s few female directors, and emphasizes how much their voices are needed.
